Church Baptistry: This detail is from a larger set of panels painted around the interior of a baptism font in a church. The congregation views the entire mural through a cut-out window behind the pulpit as if they are looking outdoors. Depending on where one sits in the church the mural content changes.

View the complete mural under the menu item "A Church Baptistry Mural".

Landscapes: "I find acrylic painting relaxing in that you can rework areas and relayer as needed to obtain the desired look." Incorporating all the artist learns over the years, acrylics allows intense depth and dramatic interpretation of any scene. Unlike watercolors, this type of painting allows greater experimentation.

For students and beginners, acrylics offers a lot of flexibility to improve. You just have to decide to keep painting. You don't have to start over. By learning the foundations of visualizing scenes onto canvas one advances rapidly.

Underseascape:

One can truly immerse the audience in the artwork if you paint floor to ceiling, like a museum installation. Murals should have great detail and interest so that they can be viewed more than once. 

See more of the panels from this highly detailed mural under the menu item "A Restaurant Mural".

Landscapes: This unfinished bridge straddles a waterfall at camp. The rising and falling water levels are intriguing to watch, as they create an unsteady creek at the bottom.

The natural rocks were interesting contrasted with the large gravel tucked up against the dam. The focus is kept on the foreground with the background foliage appearing to wave in the distance.

Still Life: The simplicity of this piece captures basic fruit and a ceramic mug on linen. The glove adds needed depth for the grouping.

Every student should use still life as a primary component of working towards portraiture. Recreating the environment is important when approaching the production of finished formal portraits.

The old adage of being able to walk before you can run applies here. Study and paint still life to then move on to more complex compositions.

These paintings were created for a magazine article where type overlayed the artwork. It represents the life of the McDonald's employee and the despair that sets into their life in a tenement.
